You Are Your Sibling’s Bestie If They Do Any of These 7 Quirky Things

April 8, 2022

A sibling is someone you’re basically forced to tolerate. A bestie is someone you chose to tolerate. So, how do you know when the sibling that has been forced by nature to tolerate you suddenly starts choosing to tolerate you? Well, it’s when they start doing any of these things.  

1) They willingly give you their food 

Having a sibling means you’re bound to share a lot of things with them, and food is no exception. You may grumble, but you won’t have a choice. But if your sibling buys food or snacks for themselves and willingly shares with you? That’s your bestie right there. 

2) They insult your dressing 

Only your best friend will be able to comfortably tell you when you’re doing nonsense. So when you’re dressed like the next fashion disaster and your sibling calls you out on it, it’s because they actually like you.

3) They randomly walk into your room for no reason 

You know how Nigerian parents just burst into your room as if they’re trying to catch you doing drugs? The one your sibling does is because they just want to look at your face. They’d rather die than tell you they miss you, but they want to be sure you’re doing okay. 

4)  You steal their property and they haven’t killed you (yet) 

Money today, wristwatch tomorrow, and their shoes the day before that. You’re constantly stealing your siblings’ property and you’re still alive to read this listicle? It’s because they care about you in a way only a bestie can. 

5) You know their friends 

Everyone knows that a bestie is well aware of the other friends. Your sibling has introduced you to every other friend just so you know nobody can ever take your post as their number one.

6) They’ve not blocked you on social media 

You can actually see all their WhatsApp status slides and tweets from their locked Twitter account? They rate you so much, and that’s why you’re their bestie. 

7) You’ll be the one to unlock their phone when they die

Not only because they trust you with their secrets (such as their burner account), but because you know their passwords. They trust that if they died today, you’d be able to wipe away all evidence of their behaviour from the internet before your parents go through the phone.
